Forsyth is accused of failing to stop and failing to report the crash within 24 hours.

He also faces a further charge of failing to identify the driver of a car in Dundee’s Hilltown following an incident there.

Forsyth, 23, of Playfair Terrace, Dundee, denies the three charges on summary complaint at Dundee Sheriff Court.

Defence solicitor Anika Jethwa said: “He isn’t here today and there are already multiple warrants for his arrest.”

Sheriff Alistair Carmichael issued another warrant for his arrest over the Tannadice crash rap.

A police source said: “Had he turned up at court today he’d have been going to the cells - there are already several matters outstanding against him that he has failed to appear for.”
